My System Specs


I've had this successfully work a few times as well.

Though after freezing it in a bag, I take it out of the bag, wrap it in a towel and place an ice pack on top and under it. Then I plug it in and grab my data off it as quickly as I can.

Drive went back to it's dead state after it warmed up though, but I got all my data off safely. It was likely stuck heads I'd say as it was making a high-pitched squeel.

Then I proceeded to RMA it to Seagate and they accepted it, so no visible damage done I guess
